Lock Down Procedures

The Department of Public Safety may initiate an emergency lock down of one or more buildings when there is a threat of violence to our community or threat of chemical exposure from outside. Please do the following when you are in a building that has been secured for emergency purposes.

  • Stay away from windows. Draw shades, if you can.
  • Lock your office door(s) and window(s).
  • Close all sources of fresh air, such as fireplace dampers and do not use the elevator.
  • Stay where you are.
  • Keep low to the floor.
  • Follow the instructions of the Emergency Building Coordinator.
  • Do not use campus phones.
  • Maintain this secure position until notified by campus officials that is it safe to move.
